‘Moving picture of politics and love’


Returning to the big screen after nearly ten years, Bill Nighy (Living) and Carey Mulligan
(Promising Young Woman) feature in the critically acclaimed revival of David Hare’s play,
directed by Stephen Daldry (The Audience).
On a bitterly cold London evening, schoolteacher Kyra receives an unexpected visit from her
former lover. As the evening progresses, the two attempt to rekindle their once passionate
relationship only to find themselves locked in a dangerous battle of opposing ideologies and
mutual desires.

Captured live from Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End in 2014.
